Inside Tim Faulkner's New Portland Arts Complex

The main gallery space at Tim Faulkner Gallery.
Erin Keane WFPL News

Many of Louisville's art galleries are intimate spaces. They're re-purposed storefronts, hosting carefully curated solo or invitational small group shows that boom on opening nights and quietly go about their business with collectors and aficionados the rest of the month. But Tim Faulkner and his gallery director Margaret Archambault have always had a more raucous vibe going, first on East Market and then in Butchertown, where their bursting-at-the-seams Tim Faulkner Gallery moved in 2012.

Right on the heels of gallery owner / art scene impresario Tim Faulkner's announcement that his eponymous gallery and studio spaces will soon move to the Portland neighborhood from its Franklin Street compound, where it moved in 2012 after it outgrew its previous East Market Street digs, The Alley Theater announced it would also leave the Butchertown neighborhood for a new downtown location. The Alley has made its home in The Pointe on Washington Street for the last four years.

Once a vital component of American theater, the form thrived as curtain-raisers before three-act productions in a time when audiences expected to spend hours at the theater on an evening out. Its  popularity has faded in recent years in favor of ten-minute plays, which abound in Louisville, but following a significant handful of recent local productions, three Louisville theater artists are committed to giving these shorter world premieres a permanent home, too.

Sometimes beautiful theatre happens in unlikely spaces. When Tim Faulkner Gallery moved from East Market Street to Butchertown last spring, the new digs gave the gallery room to breathe. A whole building on the intimate, tree-lined Franklin Street showcases not only to the many artists Faulkner represents, but also the art parties the gallery has become known for. Tim Faulkner Building also houses studios rented to artists, Matt Anthony's Record Shop, a used bookstore and other small enterprises.

May: Five Can’t-Miss First Friday Art Events

Exit Velocity Faster than the Speed of Light (2011) by Awkward x 2

It’s fine to hit the downtown First Friday Trolley Hop without a plan. Park, wander in and out of galleries, grab a drink or dinner with friends and hop a TARC trolley from one end of downtown to the next and back—you’re sure to find something to catch your eye or ears.

But with so many events and gallery receptions happening at once, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, so every month we’ll take a look at five don’t-miss art events happening during the hop.
